A comparative analysis of trends in fatal alcohol poisonings and incidence of alcoholism and alcoholic psychoses was carried out. The results of distributed lags analysis suggest positive relationship between trends in fatal alcohol poisonings and incidence of alcoholic psychoses. The relationship between trends in fatal alcohol poisonings and incidence of alcoholism was also positive but statistically not significant. These findings suggest that alcoholic psychoses incidence rate is more reliable indicator of alcohol-related problems than alcoholism incidence rate.
